Pride Festival 2017

Last Saturday, I went to support my gay family and friends and went to our city’s Pride festival. This was the first time attending and I didn’t know anyone there. Normally, if I don’t have someone to go with somewhere, I just won’t go. Yes, I give up my chance of having fun or living LIFE just because I don’t want to go alone. And I know that I am not the only person like this. *cough* introverts *cough* But I’ve had enough of missing things just because I am… Hmmm I don’t know, scared? Intimidated? Care about what people think of me being there alone? My mother often goes to movies alone, I have always admired her for that. It is something I need to do sometime because there are tons of movies that I have wanted to see but never had anyone to go with sooooo I missed the chance of seeing them on the big screen.

So going to this festival alone was HUGE for me as it is the first thing I have done alone (I think). Technically I guess I wasn’t alone, I brought Storm. But having her with me gave me the courage to get out of my house and go. Even though I brought her with, I am still proud of myself and had to give myself a pat on the back (by posting it ha!).

I ended up staying for a couple hours, which surprised me. But how could I leave when the main theme is about love? Oh! And how could I leave when everyone was adoring and gushing over Storm? I can’t help it, I’m a proud mama. I like to show her off. πŸ™‚

The most badass roller derby chic that I’ve ever seen! Hahaha!

I am a geeky animal lover and have an American Bulldog named Storm. Storm is my everything. She helps keep me sane by being my companion pet. I am an expert in chronic pain as I have Systemic Lupus, Fibromyalgia and migraines. I was diagnosed with Lupus in 2000 and the rest followed after that year.

  1. well done YOU!!!! Don’t feel bad, I have only gone to one movie in my life alone. I WILL tell you, when I did it, I felt soooooooo good! It was hard to bring myself to do that but it ended up being totally worth it. I had seen “Field of Dreams” back in the day, and to this day, that is one of my favorite and most memorable movies! Kisses to Storm! DakotasDen

  2. Canine-grats on supporting Pride Week with some totally pawsome folks and for getting out and enjoying it by yourself! Well done. That roller derby pic is hysterical! Storm’s pink tongue matches the pink on the board. Too funny.

  3. Glad you had the courage to go do something by yourself. I will do things alone, but really do hate going to a restaurant by myself. I’m never quite sure what I am supposed to do while waiting for my food. LOL
